Turners Austrian wine night

This looks interesting if you’re into you fine food and wine and have a spare ninety five quid (sadly, I don’t):

Turners Restaurant would like to invite you to an evening of fine food and Austrian wine with our special guest Johann Donabaum.

To those who are involved closely in the wine industry it is no suprise that the British appetite for Austrian wine has leapt beyond measure in recent years with sales tripling since 2006. Due to the unique flavour profiles and food friendly nature of these wines people are now catching on to these oft-ignored vinous treasures.

When the opportunity presnted itself back in November to join a vineyard visit with Connolly’s wines to four of Austria’s most highly regarded wine estates, no further encouragement was needed. After meeting with Johann Donabaum I was delighted that he accepted my offer to host a wine maker’s dinner back in Birmingham the following February.

This is a five course dinner from Richard Turner served with five carefully selected fine Austrian wines.

The dinner is priced at 95 pounds per person – spaces are limited, so to avoid disappointment book soon by calling us on 0121 426 4440.

If you would like more information about Johann Donabaum or about the wines of Austria there is a wealth of knowledge at Connolly’s wines 0121 236 92 69.

I hope you can join us on the 16th February for what  I am sure will be a memorable night.
